Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Hyundai Tucson puts service ahead of sizzle, and caps it with an excellent warranty.

Pros
A simple but appealing look
Refined ride
A quiet cockpit
Reasonable fuel economy
Excellent warranty coverage

Cons
Chintzy SE trim
Smaller cargo area than in rivals
Limited’s the only model for top tech

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2018 Hyundai Tucson ranked #7 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Hyundai Tucson has a score of 8.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 27 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Excellent crash test scores
Longer warranty than most
Comfortable and quiet

Cons
Mediocre cabin materials in lower trim levels
Base engine provides slow acceleration

By: 
usnews.com

We like the Value trim level. It lives up to its name by giving you a huge number of desirable features for an agreeable price. Its turbocharged engine also produces a pleasing amount of power. We also think that heated seats and the additional stain-resistant cloth make the absence of leather upholstery just fine.

PROS
Lots of features for the money
Top safety scores
Optional turbocharged engine delivers peppy acceleration
Comfortable ride on rough roads

CONS
Some disappointing interior pieces
Some advanced driver safety aids only available on top trim
Less cargo space than top rivals
Slow acceleration with base engine
